Next week, wannabe diva turns nun thanks to witness protection

See also

Hollywood comedy SISTER ACT has been converted into a smash musical sensation. Original music from 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken presents a fresh take on Deloris Van Cartier. The wannabe diva's life twists in a surprising (and funny) way after she witnesses a crime. The local police department places her in the most unlikely witness protection imaginable—a convent! While there, Deloris transitions her fellow sisters' voices, discovering her own in the process.

The Broadway event passes through New Orleans next week, just in time for Christmas. Performances Tuesday-Thursday (17, 18, 19 December) start at 7:30p.

Weekend performances include:

  • Friday, 20 Decmber – 8p
  • Saturday, 21 December – 2 and 8p
  • Sunday, 22 December – 2 and 7:30p

SISTER ACT is part of the Saenger's six-show seasonal ticket package. Single-show tickets may be purchased at the Saenger Theatre box office or via Ticketmaster.
